    Picking up on cupofjoe1962's thread on trading up for Fairley, Who and what would you give up for in a trade up

    Fairly 17 + 32
    Quinn 17 + 64:)
    Dareus 17 + 74

    If they really could get Dareus for #17 + 74, that would be a steal...I think you're dramatically undervaluing him. He has flexibility to play in a lot of fronts, and IMO is a lock for the top 10.

    I wouldn't trade that much to get Fairley. I keep hearing the comparison between Suh and Fairley. On talent alone, you make that deal right now. There is a difference between those two guys, discipline.

    It will show up in the NFL.

    My trade up would be 32 to 19 or 20. I think we can get an olb or de at 17. But, don't want to wait until 32 for the other. 32 and 64 for 20(TB). A lot of the playoff teams run a 3-4 and don't want to see our guy snatched up by a rival. Not sure what specific players yet. Say we get R. Kerrigan at 17. Then trade up for Heyward or C. Jordan at 20.

    Doesn't Jordan duplicate what Kerrigan already brings to the table?

    Is Heyward really a 3-4 DE? Seems to me like a better fit in a 4-3.

    Trading up is as fool's game. Which is why we so very rarely indulge in it. This said, this year could be an exception... we may have almost no need to fill spots, unless of course, we expect their to be an expansion of the roster under the new contract.

    I say hang on to what we got, and trade for one additional pick for next year.
